    Property condition


    Wrong side of town. Less desirable clientele.

    Air conditioning had problems going on and off causing me to not get sleep. Bed had uncomfortable dip.


    Noisy and Disinterested

    I thought this would be a good choice and it was cost wise and safety wise. What was unattractive was the noise didn't stop until after midnight. It seemed as though they might rent out by the week. The woman checking me in seemed very disinterested in her work and life. I think I understand, after all it was Barstow, CA.


    Not very clean

    Unfortunately the room was not very clean and smelled like old stale sigarette smoke, very nasty. All I was hoping for was a clean safe hotel and this wasn't it. I cleaned the sticky TV-remote myself and the cloth I used was very black and nasty afterwards. Really not recommended. The receptionist was also on the phone when I arrived and made me fill out the form twice because she made a mistake.


    NOT the best in Barstow, by far.

    Do NOT stay here on a hot day! The room was not pre-air conditioned and it was 109 out. It took many hours to cool down. Towels are like sandpaper. Tap water tastes awful. No tissues, just toilet paper. Free high-speed internet was about the only good thing. And they have a no cancellations, no refund policy, so you are locked in once you make a reservation.

    Cons: Sluggish AC on a very hot day

    Location: Location is fairly convenient. The K gas station down the street has decent prices and good coffee, but watch out for panhandlers.


    You can do better than "Best"

    I stayed for one night. The manager could not speak English. There was a tremendous amount of noise from off site. There were no amenities, IE. coffee, toiletries, etc. The bed was uncomfortable.

    Cons: Noise
